Author information

Carbohydrates comprise an extremely important class of biological molecules but little is known about how they mediate their effects. This gap in understanding is largely due to the fact that obtaining pure carbohydrates in amounts large enough for biochemical studies is extremely difficult. The advent of combinatorial strategies to make carbohydrates promises to revolutionize the field of carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry.
